Described as an ode to man's best friend, Ron Elisha's latest play is about a retired GP, John, whose daughter gifts him a puppy so he doesn't get lonely. The only problem is - he's not too fond of dogs - in fact, he's been terrified of them since childhood.

If you're a fan of Award-winning Australian playwright Ron Elisha, you won't want to miss this short 60-minute one-man play. This is yet another of Elisha's thought-provoking play that explores the good and bad of human relationships and the challenging journey and experiences of life.

Directed by Denny Lawrence (Bodyline, MDA, A Country Practice) and starring Dennis Coard (Five Bedrooms, Rosehaven, Utopia) this insightful and tender piece is a quiet meditation on love and loss. The main character - John Everyman who likes to live an ordered life - shares the story of how an unwanted gift from his daughter has turned his life upside down and also saved it...

Inspired by the popular expression which means 'a lot of people' or 'everyone' - the play is loosely based on Elisha's own encounters with dogs. Delivered as a compelling and vulnerable monologue, this 60-minute play explores what happens when you're forced to confront your greatest fears, taking you on a profound and moving journey that leaves you reflecting on what it means to be human.

Everyman & His Dog showing at The Explosives Factory from 5 - 8 October as part of the 2022 Victorian Seniors Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival season.
